A Garden Favourite…

By July 13, 2021Blog

Well 2 garden favourites really…raspberries and Southern Hawkers! Liz Honer has sent in this lovely photo of a male Southern Hawker…still maturing as the colours are quite pale, but the diagnostic abdominal markings are very clear…paired dots that merge together towards the end of the abdomen to form a continuous band of colour. Though females have different coloration and are stockier and not ‘waisted’ they also have paired dots that merge in the same way.
